before everyone gets sick of my nebwi questions, who's 8.8ed they're yj, I got a d2 8.8 which is the 4.10 tracklock model but am not sure about drive shaft alteration since the yokes are different and e brake issues. Thanks.

If you have the drum brake 8.8 you can use the E brake cables off of the old dana 35 if you have the disc brake 8.8 you can modify the old E brake cables get some cable crimps and make a loop on the end of the cable and crimp it.

and Matt does usually stock the rest of the dshaft conversion parts both he and I do those conversions all the time. Call Jeap Thrills for Matt 604 465 5559

what would it cost me to have one of you guys install it or help me with it, I am a machinist so can make custom parts or whatever you might need.

I could do it at my shop in about 4 to 5 hrs at $50/hr plus parts
